All Good Things Come in Fives!! http://www.fortknoxfive.com
Some seriously funky groups come in Five’s - The Jackson 5, The MC 5, Jurassic 5… and of course Fort Knox Five.
Fort Knox Five is known for bending genres and using a broad range of musical elements in their creation of highly original music. This approach ultimately pioneered a funky scene where FK5 continues to top charts today.
While Fort Knox Five compose music like a band in the studio with live instrumentation blended into electronic music, they are renowned for their exciting and eclectic DJ performances. Founding members Steve Raskin and Jon Horvath established a unique live DJ set using mashed-up acapellas and effects woven into original tracks, exclusive mixes and dance floor destroyers. These sets have proven to be irresistible to club goers worldwide, rocking parties with infectious grooves that effortlessly move from funk, reggae & glitch-hop to prime time 4/4 beats & breaks.
With the untimely passing of Jon H, Steve Raskin has taken over as the principle DJ for the group and now leads the charge of the Fort Knox brigade on the road into the funky future. He tours their signature brand of glitched-out funk with high energy sets in every environment from pools to lounges to world famous clubs and some of the largest festivals across the globe.
Fort Knox Five has toured and performed for nearly two decades alongside major artists like The Beastie Boys, Snoop Dogg, Public Enemy, Jurassic 5, Z Trip, Diplo, A Trak, Craze, Gwen Stefani, the Black Eyed Peas, A Skillz, Krafty Kuts, Stanton Warriors, Bassnectar, Skrillex, and London Electricity. They have performed on 5 continents and in over 30 different countries and have had their music featured on every medium from award-winning video games to Oscar-winning films.
Forget about tempos and genres, let Fort Knox Five take you on a musical journey that unites the funk, soul, jazz, hip hop and electronic generations.
